Rated 3 out of 5 by from Was a great hat??? Received this hat as a gift and enjoyed it greatly for many years fly fishing until the adjustable plastic buckle on the band broke. Now sadly it is not of much use although otherwise the hat is in great shape!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adjustable ban takes out the guess work in sizing My second purchase of the Lochsa River Hat that I use gardening and fishing for sun protection and I particularly like the flexible brim riding down a windy river.This hat is by far my favorite of my 69 years enjoying the great outdoors!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fishing hat I bought one of these hats a long time ago and used it extensively for fly fishing. A couple of years ago I lost it on a river float in Alaska. Tried to replace it but it wasn't available until just recently. I was disappointed that the brilliant colored hat band, which is shown in the picture, has been replaced by a dull colored one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10 years and still going strong I purchased this hat 10 years ago to use while sight fishing for tailing redfish in the flooded grass of North Florida or walking the beach. It quickly became my all-outdoor hat. It has endured countless hours in the hot humid Florida climate as I garden, cut the grass or sit around the swimming pool. A great investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Fishing Hat Out There Great hat! This is actually my second copy of the Lochsa River Straw Hat. While the first one is still in pretty good shape after 5 yrs of use, I wanted to have another one 'ready for action'. Two of the guides I've fished with in Dillon, MT wear the same hat, and I always get positive comments from other anglers I encounter. The best things about the hat are: it really shades your face and neck; it's waterproof; it stays on in the wind (using the chin cord); it's good looking; and, it floats! What more could you ask for?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never without shade. I was looking for relief from the sun during my weekly fishing trips. This hat is perfect, comfortable, adjustable, wide brim, and a safety strap for the quick dashes between fishing holes. And not bad looking to top it all off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tibet to Patagonia I have worn this hat on hikes from Tibet to Patagonia. Great Hat for sun protection, keeping the rain off your head. It will pack flat in a suit case and with a shake come back to it's shape. one down side in winds it will blow off so you need to use chin strap. Also if winds are coming from behind you use chin strap & tuck staps behind ears to keep from blowing off forward. GREAT HAT !!!!!
